And while Synthroid isn't prescribed as often, it is still used frequently by patients with low thyroid conditions like hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Most doctors and patients believe that these medications are interchangeable, but is it true? Not really. Even though these medications contain the exact same active ingredient they are NOT the same. Some people react better to levothyroxine and some react better so Synthroid but there's no way to know for sure if you will react well to one or the other without giving it a try.
